I read an article “teachers now putting in such long work hours ‘karoshi’ is a risk” THE ASAHI SHIMBUN, April 29, 2017 at 18:55 JST. The article said that teachers at public elementary and junior high schools are work more than 11 hours a day on average.The working time has been rising since 10 years ago, and it places at the risk of dying from work. These days, the problems of dying from overwork is controversial issue. Many company change the rules of the working time. I think we should place restrictions on the teacher’s working time as same as company.
I read an article "The Japan Times ST", April 28. Aboutone years before, a big earth quake occured in Kumamoto. 225 people was killed by the earth quakes and more than 47,000 people cannot live their house. I was surprised that so many people still in temporary housing. In addition, 119,000 people also in temporary housing in Tohoku because of the Great East Japan Earthquake. After earthquakes TV news report that every day, but as the wears go by, as we hardly concern about a present state of disaster-stricken area. I think that it is important to continue to learn the situation and support.
